A collection of links from the last week

The return of Delicious links

I’ve decided to trial putting a daily auto Delicious feed back on the site again to see what happens. I took this feature off the site earlier in the year, as often that would be the extent of the blog content, which didn’t seem a good thing.

I’d like your thoughts and feelings as to whether it works this time, if it’s useful or just adds clutter. I’ll aim where possible to add editorial comment, categories and tags like I’m doing here, to give context.

If it looks like it will get to the point where the majority of blog posts are just Delicious links I will once again take the feature off – before that happens!

So here are the things I book marked today (bit of a backlog by the looks of it):

This week’s recommended reads

What I’ve been reading/viewing/listening to this week, hope you find it useful. I’m going to try and do this on a more regular basis. Let’s see how we go.
